The legend of Aaron Judge continues to grow at an unprecedented rate in New York. Today, the Yankees budding superstar slugger absolutely murdered a 495-foot home run in the sixth inning against the Orioles that almost collided with some of the retired numbers in the mezzanine.
According to Statcast, it’s the longest home run of 2017. It was Judge’s 20th on the campaign. Don’t count on seeing a longer blast this year.
You can go to baseball games your whole life and maybe never see a ball hit this far. ??

For good measure, Judge added an oppo blast, his 21st, in the 7th.
